Lady Bank's Rose from my Garden - Sunni's Photo's
Yellow is not my favorite color, but it is bright and cheery. It reminds of summer and warm weather, which I love. I always plant yellow flowers in my garden, although finding something the chipmunks won’t eat is always a challenge. They even eat marigolds, which I thought were bitter. They certainly don’t smell very nice. Once the bright yellow flowers are gone, they generally leave the leaves alone, so maybe the only bitter parts are the leaves. My grandmother used to put them on the edges of her garden to keep some of the pests out. She had many old remedies for things.
However, yellow seems to be the choice for lots of things. Have you ever wondered why school buses are yellow, and caution lights, yardsticks, and even pencils? I guess sometimes that my mind gets to going to strange places. I’m always on a quest for answers that I don’t know, so I decided to look this up. Why not use blue, or purple for some of these things?
One would guess that other things, like the yardstick and ruler started out yellow for easy visibility. Today they come in various colors.
Thanks for visiting. I hope you learned something from this post.
